Hi,

I am seeing the following error whever user searches for any thinkg in my forum.

Fatal error: Call to undefined function mb_substr() in apache-2.2.15/htdocs/messageboardappl/FudForum/theme/default/search.php on line 1165

I have default php.ini properities, pelase let me know what are the i need to chagne to enable mb-string .

following are the php.ini values :-
[mbstring]
; language for internal character representation.
;mbstring.language = Japanese

; internal/script encoding.
; Some encoding cannot work as internal encoding.
; (e.g. SJIS, BIG5, ISO-2022-*)
;mbstring.internal_encoding = EUC-JP

; http input encoding.
;mbstring.http_input = auto

; http output encoding. mb_output_handler must be
; registered as output buffer to function
;mbstring.http_output = SJIS

; enable automatic encoding translation accoding to
; mbstring.internal_encoding setting. Input chars are
; converted to internal encoding by setting this to On.
; Note: Do _not_ use automatic encoding translation for
; portable libs/applications.
;mbstring.encoding_translation = Off

; automatic encoding detection order.
; auto means
;mbstring.detect_order = auto

; substitute_character used when character cannot be converted
; one from another
;mbstring.substitute_character = none;

; overload(replace) single byte functions by mbstring functions.
; mail(), ereg(), etc are overloaded by mb_send_mail(), mb_ereg(),
; etc. Possible values are 0,1,2,4 or combination of them.
; For example, 7 for overload everything.
; 0: No overload
; 1: Overload mail() function
; 2: Overload str*() functions
; 4: Overload ereg*() functions
;mbstring.func_overload = 0

Please let me know what are the values i need to change , so that it enables the mb_string lib.

Note :- I chagned the mbstring.func_overload = 0 to mbstring.func_overload = 2 and restarted the apache but no luck and i installed the mb_string also.

Could any one let me know where mb_string related files will be stored after installing ?


Thanks
Manoj

Looks like you are running on Linux. Please check if you have the "php-mbstring" package installed.

To be honest, I have no idea. As far as I'm concerned you just need to install php-mbstring (which will probably require mb_string) and restart Apache. If you then do a phpinfo() you should see that it is enabled. There is no need to set or uncomment any of the mbstring parameters in php.ini.

Best of luck!
